Editorial Reviews

This electrifying action sequel unleashes the deadly invisible Predator in another jungle -- the urban jungle of Los Angeles. Danny Glover stars as a lieutenant who mistakenly concludes that mangled bodies found by the police are the work of feuding gangs. Instead, he finds himself confronting a savage alien who has come from a distant world to hunt humans for sport. Gary Busey and Ruben Blades co-star in this suspense-packed, high-tech thriller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better on Bluray... June 20, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
I hesitated renting this one because I already owned it on DVD. That version looked terrible - fuzzy, grainy, generally like crap. The Bluray is much sharper and more enjoyable to watch. Pretty good special features, too. I'm actually considering adding it to my collection of Blurays.

This sequel to 1987's highly popular and successful PREDATOR is not nearly as suspenseful as the original, but it is still exciting and action-packed. Though star Danny Glover does not generate the same commanding screen presence that Arnold Schwarzenegger did in the first film, he is nonetheless a very talented and experienced actor, and he and his fantastic supporting cast--the gorgeous Maria Conchita Alonso, the always-delightful Bill Paxton, Hollywood staple Gary Busey, and Panamanian character actor Rubén Blades--are able to raise 1990's PREDATOR 2 several notches above the average quality level of film sequels.
This time the eponymous extraterrestrial is on safari in the (then) futuristic Los Angeles of 1997, and it is Columbian and Jamaican drug lords, mon, that seem to be his prey of choice. But when he spots the crime-fighting juggernaut Lieutenant Mike Harrigan (Danny Glover) in action, he feels he's finally found the king of this urban jungle. Harrigan then becomes the main object of the hunt, and the inevitable but exciting showdown takes place on the upper levels of a high-rise apartment in the L.A. slums.
The special FX of this sequel are not as fresh as they were in the original PREDATOR, but they are still adequate for the story and action. The Alien, when visible, gets more screen time than he did in the first film, and genre fans will be delighted to see that Stan Winston and his staff manage to make the E.T. look just as cool as before.
In short, PREDATOR 2 is not as fresh, classy, or suspenseful as its progenitor, but Danny Glover--who, though no Arnie, is a talented and interesting actor--creates an urban hero who is both compelling and sympathetic.

4.0 out of 5 stars He's in town with a few days to kill... March 12, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Following a wildly successful film is never easy, especially one backed up with the star power of an Arnold Schwarzenegger, who apparently chose not to reprise his role as he didn't care for the script, feeling the idea of a Predator film set in a major metropolitan city was a poor one, instead working on a little film called Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)...perhaps you've heard of it...rumor has it Patrick Swayze was offered the starring role in this film, but couldn't accept due to injuries sustained during the filming of Road House...so with the success of Lethal Weapon (1987) and Lethal Weapon 2 (1989) under his belt, Danny Glover was chosen, for better or worse...written by Jim and John Thomas (the brothers behind the 1987 film Predator), Predator 2 (1990) was directed by Stephen Hopkins (Judgment Night, Lost in Space), and stars Danny Glover (Silverado, Lethal Weapon). Also appearing is Gary `Mr. Head Injury' Busey (Under Siege, Black Sheep), Rubén Blades (Mo' Better Blues, The Two Jakes), Maria Conchita Alonso (The Running Man, Colors), Bill Paxton (Navy SEALS, Twister), Robert Davi (The Goonies, Die Hard), Adam Baldwin (My Bodyguard, D.C. Cab), Morton Downey Jr. (Revenge of the Nerds III: The Next Generation), and Kevin Peter Hall (Harry and the Hendersons, Predator) as the Predator, but obviously not the same one as in the first film (well, obvious if only you've seen the first film, which you should before seeing this one).

The film is set in L.A. (the original setting was to be New York City), in the grim, near future of 1997 (remember, the film was released 1990, and back then, we didn't have the brightest outlook on the future). The city and police are under siege by not only ruthless, excessively armed drug gangs, but also an oppressive heat wave.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Predator in a urban jungle... August 23, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The collection has two discs - the first has the movie with two full commentary tracks (with tons of info) and the second has behind the scene featurettes, a documentary, special effect clips, a photo gallery and trailers. Both Danny Glover and Gary Busey are great in this movie and make sure to watch for wall of skulls near the end when Danny enters the Predator's spaceship. Great surprise ending for those of you who have never seen it.

Get it new or used.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Sequel August 13, 2004
Format:DVD
First we must be honest with ourselves. Danny Glover is not playing some random LA detective in this movie. He is simply reprising his role as Roger Murtaugh from the immortal Lethal Weapon series. However, the resulting film featuring Good ol' Sgt "I'm gettin too old for this . . . " Murtaugh chasing after an evil alien human hunter is an action-packed, often humorous romp. The ending gives the Predator character a little more depth, but still leaves its presence a mystery for the most part, yet somehow the monster remains the perfect bad guy that we all love to hate.

However, this movie never garnered the attention that its predecessor did. This is likely due to the fact that we all wanted a Schwarzenegger shoot-em-up and got a slightly more humorous, plot-driven Predator featuring more of an everyman type of hero.

Yet what separates it from the first film is what makes it great. Glover is not subbing for Schwarzenegger. Rather, he is adding a new element to the story and, along with his supporting cast, some better acting than in the first and a slightly more intriguing plot. All in all, this is a worthwhile movie to own and watch again and again.
